White Cops: Do we really need 'em?

(Achtung! Sarcasm alert!)

There's been a lot of concern lately about police violence in the United States. Police kill over 1,000 people, mostly fellow Americans, every year.

Here comes the Canada Day/Independence Day extravaganza

Every year at this time we get to take a day off, hang with friends and family, and think about how lucky we are to be so darned free in these great countries of ours.

Bill C51: What if Police are Already Abusing their Power?

On October 20, 2014, troubled Quebecker Martin Couture-Rouleau used his car to run down two members of the Canadian Armed Forces in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.

Two days later, troubled Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, known to have been a drug user and described by some acquaintances as having had mental issues, shot an unarmed Canadian Armed Forces sentry dead at the National War Memorial, and proceeded to Parliament Hill, where he entered the Centre Block, got into a shootout with security, and was shot dead himself.

Australia is agog.

"Prime Minister attacked by wild mob." "Gillard saved from Aboriginal riot by police." Lurid media stories are accompanied by photos of Prime Minister Julia Gillard being hauled through a crowd of police, losing her shoe, stumbling and falling at one point, being shoved into a car, and hauled to "safety."
